India rout Bangladesh within three days in historic Day-Night Test
In the first ever Day-Night Test held in India, the hosts managed to complete a whitewash as they registered a comprehensive innings victory over Bangladesh. The No.1 ranked Test side displayed its supremacy over the opposition throughout the series.
Here are some key highlights of this historic Pink ball Test.
Kohli leads from the front
After a duck in the first Test, Virat Kohli led from the front with a magnificent century. Scoring 136 in his first ever Day-Night Test, he stamped his authority against the pink ball as well. Kohli was flawless during his stay, playing strokes all along the ground.

The tall and lanky pacer has been in the twilight of his career. With a spectacular pool of pacers around him, Ishant emerged as the standout performer. Picking 5/22 and 4/56, he registered a splendid nine-wicket haul at home. This was his second five-wicket haul in India. The first came against Pakistan 12 years ago.
Umesh on fire
Displaying his fortitude with the ball, Umesh Yadav was on a roll as he managed to get a fifer in the second innings. He picked all the three remaining wickets on Day Three as Bangladesh failed to clear the deficit.
No one expected the visitors to defeat India but the way they were tormented was really painful to watch for any Bangladeshi fan. While the first Test spanned over three days, the final one didn't even last a single session on Day 3.

World Test Championship
India's dominance in the World Test Championship can be clearly reflected in the points table. With 360 points in their kitty, they have also achieved three whitewashes in a row in the WTC. As for Bangladesh, their confidence seems shaken a bit and they'll have to rejuvenate themselves before their next challenge.
India's next assignment will be against the West Indies where they play three T20Is and three ODIs in December.
